Trying to make sense of health research?

This tool will guide you through a series of questions to help you to review and interpret a published health research paper.

You will also be given some guidance on how to work out whether the research findings apply to you or not. You need to be careful about applying research findings to your own circumstances, and in many cases it is best to speak to a health professional before making decisions based on research findings.
